Summary 

This fusion of traditional /contemporary design proposes 201, 1-2 bedroom loft-style living apartments. Utilising the industrial layout of the old mill to create something truly unique. 
 
Our purpose on site is to conduct large scale abrasive cleaning to the mill's internal envelope. Our abrasive cleaning techniques on this project has involved forcibly blasting a designated specification of sand against both masonry and steel surfaces at high pressure. This pressurised cleaning process has allowed us to remove existing surface contaminants - predominantly lead based paint. As the restoration of Crusader Mill continues, we can stand back and appreciate the mill's long forgotten industrialised character and its inherent  rustic charm.
